Nokia filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple over its iPhone in October, but now Apple has hit back with its own countersuit, alleging that Nokia has infringed 13 of its patents. “Other companies must compete with us by inventing their own technologies, not just by stealing ours,” says Apple general counsel Bruce Sewell. The suit goes on to suggest that while Apple was revolutionising mobile with its iPhone, Nokia “made a different business decision and remained focussed on traditional mobile wireless handsets with conventional user interfaces. As a result, Nokia has rapidly lost share in the market for high-end mobile phones.” Oof! Source: VentureBeat Source: TechCrunch
